Harry Jackson (American, 1924-2011)

The Seeker

Bronze with a green/brown patina, height 11 1/2 in. (29.0 cm), on a black metal plinth
Condition: Dust and dirt to interstices, minor wear to patina at bottom of headdress.

Provenance: The collection of Joseph Thomas Alvarez III, California.

N.B. This standing figure of a chief with a trailing warbonnet probably represented Washakie. In 1978 Harry Jackson was at work on a major outdoor equestrian sculpture of chief Washakie and did several standing versions as studies which became finished works in their own right.
